Chlorophylla (Chlora) Race

*finished colored version added later*

Species: Gyrwitt

Chlorophylla, or Chlora in short, is a race that consists of humanoid floras. Their appearances are various based on which plants they represent, and most of them has leaves, vines, or branches as their hair, although it's not impossible to have tree bark as hair too.
A Chloran whose plant represents Gyrwitt is often called Gyrwitturan.

Gyrwitt is famously known for its magical wood. It's rich in magical power and the wood is strong, and it is one of the biggest trade business components done by the Clorans to another countries. Many people, especially magicians and shopkeepers would recommend accessories, wands, staves, and other supporting magical devices made by wood of Gyrwitturans. In addition, when the user cast an Earth magic with the wood as the medium of the spell, the magic will be powerful as the Gyrwitturans have Earth as their innate element.

The usefulness of the wood makes the wood to be in high demand, however, applying (carving, sculpting etc) the wood into useful accessories, devices and equipment is very difficult. The process will take a long time and it needs a lot of patience, accuracy, neatness and carefulness to not to reduce its magic power. When a Gyrwitturan donates their wood for a raw material, the part which they amputated will grow back slowly as the wood regrown need to gather its new magic power. Their woods are also rich in growing mushrooms as well that it takes more effort to clean them before the wood is ready to be processed. Due to these difficulties, the wood materials are very expensive.

Gyrwitturans are willingly to help other countries to distribute their woods as long as there are no illegal logging or being misused in a negative way. Such a strong magical power contained in their wood cause the Gyrwitturans to be very picky, cautious, and careful in their business matter. Considering how precious and useful their woods are, Gyrwitturans hardly tolerate any trespasses and they will immediately break off their business contract with the related person(s) and/or country / countries.

aside from the magical power, many mushrooms grow quite rich on the Gyrwitt woods. Unlike the other plant species, Gyrwitturans need less sunlight and needs to keep themselves in cool places. Damp and humid places are still necessary for them, but not much. This is also the reason why if someone touch the Gyrwitt wood, they can feel the flow of the magical power, as well as its calming coolness on their skin. Being flourish of mushrooms, many animal which are mushroom-eaters often visit the Gyrwitturans for their meal or simply for a treat. Deers, rabbits, squirrels, insects, even slugs and snails. Due to this reasons, mushrooms cleaned from the wood before being processed are not thrown away but collected to feed these animals.

Gyrwitturans are also quite stingy in sharing their woods and mushrooms due to the explanation above. Extra respect is required highly for sharing, and they tend to be reluctant and dislike sharing mushrooms for people. They care animals deeply though as they are Gyrwitturans' priority in feeding. Gyrwitturans don't mind at all to share the mushrooms for the animals. They often seen taking animals which feed in mushrooms to be placed on their body part (hand, shoulders, etc) for feeding.

Due to the tree-oriented species, the minimal height of a Gyrwitturan is 3 metres.

Gyrwitturan features:
• Overgrown mushrooms
• Spring: dark green, more flowers
• Summer: dark green, more leaves
• Autumn: brown, more overgrown mushrooms
• Winter: white

*you can use any kind of plants to create your Chlora character. or feel free making your OC as Gyrwitt species for the group if you want to.
creating your own original plant is also welcomed too!

*will add more if I have new ideas*
